SEALFONS SEALING ITS DOORS

Sealfons, the largest store in the Grove, is moving out by the end of the year because of rising rents, the Asbury Park Press is reporting.

The 25,000-square-foot space will be divided between Brooks Bros., which already has a store at the Grove, and Anthropologie, whose intentions with regard to the Grove were reported here in June.

The closing means the end of the family-owned Sealfons department store chain, which grew to its peak of six stores in the mid-1990s but has been in paring mode in recent years, the Press reports.
